Waterproofing the Olas at Las Bolas!

I know it sounds crazy. Waterproofing waves? San Clemente Ca knows “olas” and Prestige Decking knows how to ride the waves of deck coating! We recently traveled to Las Bolas street in sunny San Clemente to perform an extensive deck repair project.

Waterproofing Balconies

Deck Repair. We first had some major deck repair to perform. Due to the rotted out framing, and full deckwaterproofing_post weldingwaterproofing_rusted post coatings removal, the railing of the deck needed to be removed to access the plywood. In addition. the railing was rusted out, so we repaired and welded the rusted out areas. Prestige Deck Coating is an expert in all things deck repair!

Flashing repair. This deck had one side of stucco wall. The flashing was trashed underneath, so we performed a stucco removal/repair to access the L metal, in order to install new flashing. The drip edge flashing was also rusted out, so we installed new metal along the edge of the balcony. Riding the waves in San Clemente decky waters is in perfect trim with Prestige Decking!

Crete Decking System. We were then ready to lay down our on-the-site developed deck waterproofing system. While we think there are many good systems on the market, such as AVM and the Desert Brand systems, we typically install our own variety called the Crete System. With the Crete System, you get the best of both worlds: highest quality products and a lower cost.

1) Staple down 2.5lb diamond shaped metal lathe on top of plywood subfloor and over flashing
2) Trowel first coat of polymer modified concrete (see video above)
3) Lay down fiberglass matting and adhere with bonder
4) Trowel second skim coat of polymer modified concrete
5) Spray texture of your choice
6) Coat with two applications of concrete paint sealer
